Question about HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Hello: I have a HP photosmart C6180 and for over a year, I haven't been able to print in black without it smudging so badly, it almost unreadable. I print almost everything in color, but I'm tired of doing that. I've run all of the fix it suggestions and changed the cartrage. Please help. Thanks, Stacey

Have you done 2-4 head cleanings and then looked again if it improved?

  1. Open the All-in-One Toolbox :
    1. Open HP Solution Center (click Start , click All Programs , click HP , and then click HP Solution Center ).
    2. If you have more than one All-in-One installed, make sure to select the correct All-in-One tab in HP Solution Center .
    3. Click Settings .
    4. Click Print Settings .
    5. Click Printer Toolbox .
  2. On the Device Services tab, click Clean the Print Cartridges , and then follow the onscreen instructions. Three levels of cleaning are available.

Run all the cleanings atleast two times and try printing again. If you have a option there to only clean the black cartridge use it instead of cleaning all the cartridges since black is the only problem.


Also aling the cartridges ones your done cleaning.

Photosmart c6180 printer status offline


IF you have more than one printer set up on your system take all the others off except this one if you are able to without disrupting your home printing flow for others.

Another suggestion would be to download the newest drivers if you have not already; I found the site below with the drivers for this printer at:

Hope this helps.

C6180 photosmart black ink will not print


You can download and run the HP Printing Diagnostic Utility from www.hp.com and it will usually fix common issues. If not, it will tell you which area or component has a problem. Here is a link:

HP C6180 will only print a partial document


Hi Rbluhm,

I need somre more information regarding this issue. Like are you able to print fine from other applications without any issue, connectivity and foremost thing operating system you are using...

However, as a work around, I would suggest to select the "Print directly to the printer" option in the properties of Hp Photosmart C6100 series icon.

That is:
1. Go to printer folder.
2. Right click on the printer icon.
3. Click on the Advance tab
4. Select "Print directly to the printer" option.
5. Click apply and click ok.

Then just close all the windows opened on your computer and then re-open the Microsoft Word document and try printing....


I am sure this will resolve the issue. However, if the issue persist, do reply me soonnnnnnnnnnn.......

With Regards.
Mike.....
